Cuisine: Family, New Zealand, Share Plates
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

Got the appetite of a lion and the thirst of a camel crossing the desert? Get yourself down to the Zoo Eatery’s newest outpost.

Handily located on Ormiston Road, your brood will love spotting the wild animal wall murals. However, polished wooden floorboards and chic lighting make it an equally comfortable habitat for business lunches as family outings.

The food is modern and fresh, showcasing the best of New Zealand’s natural larder. Enjoy sashimi and tasty carpaccio in the raw bar with your choice of salad, sharing plates including blushing beef Wellington, burgers and a selection of lighter nibbles.

Little animals will love the Dino Burgers, all of which come with healthy green leaves and chips, while your appetite will be tamed by the likes of king fish sliders and venison tartare.

If you're looking to combine a fun-loving atmosphere with excellent food, look no further. There is also a much-loved sister restaurant in Henderson.

We had a good dinner, meals were a good size and all tasty! The Salmon Sashimi, Brocolli and Braised Pork Dino burger were the best dishes we had!

Enjoyable food, something different and new to try. The menu is a quirky mix of asian and western food, but not really fusion. Whilst the service was friendly enough, just didn't seem that well experienced such as telling us about the specials or knowing how to work the till.

I had high hopes for this restaurant but our group of 4 were all left feeling highly disappointed. The small sharing plates, except for the chicken, had really bizarre flavor combinations. The open prawn dumplings were cold with cold melted cheese and a dollop of pesto on top. The prawns had not been deveined.
The burgers were also a big disappointment and the buns weren't fresh.
The beef Wellington was nice but served with cranberry sauce which was a good match. The sides came out long before the meat which meant half our meal was stone cold and hard before the full main was even served. The wedges were chopped, very dry potatoes
The service was good and the waitress was attentive however the food was such a let down. I wish we had gone somewhere else.

The attentive service we received at Zoo Eatery was phenomenal! We were well taken care of and they struck the perfect balance between being super friendly and leaving us to enjoy our meal.

Highly recommend the fish sliders and the prawn dumplings as they were very tasty. The broccolini and the panko crumbed burgers were also a hit with our group.

Great service but the burgers were a bit disappointing. Deep fried burger buns are an interesting concept but lots of oil in the bun isn't that nice.

Fully enjoyed the food and service. Bluff oysters and salmon arrived that morning, tasted as if it came straight from the sea! All the platters were great and the dessert was velvety; loved it!

We had a delightful meal experience in this beautiful restaurant. The flower wall picture was visually appealing. The drink we ordered was sake, which was great for starting the meal. Then we ordered some dishes, squid pasta and eel tapa. tasted lovely. The service was good as well, the waitress were friendly and patiently introduced us the menu. Thank you for this experience

Delicious meal, shared 5 'tasting sized' plates between three of us, an ideal way to enjoy different types of food. Service was friendly and efficient, will definitely return again.

close to our home, convenient location in Ormiston junction. Good fusion food and great service, except the music is a little loud for lunch time.

We had a great experience at Zoo Eatery...
Having dined at their Henderson outlet a long time ago and having also been impressed with our large group experience.....

We're glad to say that the Botany outlet has all the same elements: Courteous Service, Amazing Food, Large Portions, Good Drink Selection!!

All of this added to a very pleasurable experience and a great addition to the limited dining options in this area....

Definitely well worth a visit to try their signature dishes!!

We had a great time trying Zoo Eatery & Lounge Botany Junction for lunch. The service and staff were wonderful & friendly. The menu had a range of different options and we were not disappointed when our food arrived. The food was fresh and delicious. Before we left we were already looking at what we'd have next time we go with our husbands in tow.

We enjoyed the Amazing food in a beautiful setting in the heart of botany junction.It has a cool funky vibe and we absolutely loved the decor.As it was quite hot in the day so we decided to settle outside and enjoy the cool breeze.
Customer service was on point,super friendly and very attentive.
Our food arrived on time and was delicious and filling.
We tried the squid ink pasta and sushi hand rolls,popcorn chicken kalage and the AMAZING deep fried T.Rex burger.Everything was prepared and cooked to perfection.
Prices are generous too guys so you have to check this place out!
All in all we enjoyed our experience 100%
and highly recommend it to all.
Way to go Zoo lounge and eatery botany!
